TIP OF THE WEEK - Storing ackees

Published:Thursday | April 29, 2010 | 12:00 AM

If you are lucky to have ackee trees bearing now, you may be wondering what to do with the surplus. Here are some ideas.


  • 1. Sell or give away some.
  • 2. Clean and pour cooking oil over them then freeze till ready to cook.
  • 3. Cook as normal for three to five minutes, drain and cool; store in Ziploc plastic containers with lids. Freeze until ready for use, then thaw and add to fried seasoning, gently making sure segments are still whole.
